First Paper Pieced Project
I finally finished this lap quilt with paper pieced buzzsaw blocks. It's my first experience with paper piecing, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. We won't talk about how long it took me to construct the first block, but after much practice, and several blocks later, I cut the time to finish a block to 1/4 of the original time:)
I quilted 1/4" from the edges (seamlines) of each buzzsaw...first time for that, too! Goodness, there was a lot of turning!!! But, being a lap sized quilt, I could handle it. The peiced top is made entirely from scraps from my stash.
It's going to a friend of DD's who gave me a couple expensive bags of worm castings a couple of years ago. (She worked at a worm compost farm.)
